Siskel & Ebert & the Movies: Gattaca/The House of Yes/A Life Less Ordinary/FairyTale: A True Story/Sunday (1997)
If Siskel & Ebert gave 2 thumbs down, I made a point to watch it
My first paying job was at a video store when I was 15, back in 1993. In those days, I found my taste in movies being polar opposite of what Siskel and Ebert stated theirs was. Nearly 20 year later, I'm reminded how polar opposite our takes were as I read this review of "A Life Less Ordinary." "A Life Less Ordinary" was arguably one of the greatest romantic drama/comedy movies of the past 20 years. I have a feeling S&E would agree today.
Now, I may not be a die hard fan of Cameron Diaz; on the contrary, she's had some hit-and-miss films. But, Ewan McGregor has made his mark in US film history with a string of jaw-dropping hits. And to Diaz's credit, if I remember correctly, this was her second major motion picture (after "The Mask"), and she slayed the role. Magnificent. Oh, did I mention Holly Hunter? Umm, Yeah.
Dirty Love (2005)
Destined to be a cult classic!
I'm watching Dirty Love on Showtime right now. I forgot how hysterical this movie is. It's one of those movies that are so campy, so crude, so funny, you find yourself watching it over and over, as you watch it every time you have a friend over.
If you like movies like American Pie, Serial Mom, Psycho Beach Party and alike, or if you just like Jenny McCarthy, you'll love this movie.
BTW, I couldn't believe this movie only got a 2.5 rating. That's what happens when people with no sense of humor are allowed to vote!
A few of my favorite scenes: The grocery store ("Cleanup on isle 2!"), "Magic", Jeans.
For being a "dumb" flick, Dirty Love is brilliant!
